How Did an S49 Submarine Get so Close to Saugus?

Join us at the library on September 15 at 6:30 pm to hear the answer to that question from local author Stephen Wilk.

Launched in 1921, Submarine S-49 was built for the United States Navy but was eventually sold to “Captain” Francis J. Chrestensen  who turned it into a floating tourist attraction, for which he charged a 25-cent admission. One of its stops was Point-O-Pines in Revere.

Anyone interested in local history or submarines will enjoy his program.

Stephen Wilk has been writing and publishing since 1979. He’s interested in the unusual, including edible lasers, and questions like “Why do vampires dissolve in sunlight?”.
